Promoting Awareness & Hope for Healing from an Eating Disorder

Owensboro, April 24, 2023: Aubrey’s Song Foundation for Eating Disorders invites Owensboro and Tri-state communities to a free community event, “Body Image, Dangerous Dieting, and Eating Disorders,” presented by The Chesnut Group, on Thursday evening, May 4, 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Bally’s Evansville, 421 NW Riverside Dr, Meeting Room Walnut A/B, Evansville.

“35% of dieting becomes obsessive, and 20-25% of those diets turn into eating disorders. At least 30 million Americans suffer from an eating disorder and every 62 minutes, at least one person dies as a direct result of an eating disorder.” says Theresa Chesnut, LCSW, CEDs-S and founder of The Chesnut Group. “Despite these statistics, full recovery is possible. This community event seeks to bring awareness and understanding about these complicated illnesses and offers a panel discussion that will inspire hope and inspiration for recovery.”

Marilyn Clark, the mother of Aubrey Michelle Clark, Aubrey’s Song Foundation’s namesake, will be Keynote Speaker. Owensboro’s Haley Minton will serve on a panel as someone with lived experience and thriving in recovery, along with national experts in the field of eating disorders. Griffin Glasscock, morning meteorologist for 44News will moderate, and IN Rep. Ryan Hatfield is scheduled to attend as well. Anyone who is, has, or knows someone struggling with an eating disorder or body image issues is encouraged to attend.
